    That Yankee Babbleman is a skinny armed loudmouth. I’ll try to spend a minimum or no time at all for that guy or his ilk.
    Can you send us some gorilla paedophilia or something?

    +1

    BTW - I wonder how many of you got the jab already?
    I mean the "less vaccinated nations" - I am well aware that most Yanks, Canucks and Britons are already "jabbed" - but here, in Poland, the rate has only hit 35% now (and that's for the first dose) - and we are one of the leaders, compared to other EU states.

    Got mine (single dose) last Saturday.

    Hi, Frog. Speaking as as a certified Yank, and recognizing that we aren't much loved the world over, I hesitate to report on my vaccination status. Fuck, well the hesitation has ended: I am lucky enough to have been fully vaccinated (meaning two jabs/shots of the Moderna vaccine). But it wasn't easy for me to get the shots. I had to drive for hours to reach the vax facility. My experience is apparently unusual; a pretty girl -- she had long, fake eyelashes and a casual but sexy posture and voice (ahem) -- at the local supermarket told me that she travelled only about 100 meters by foot to get her shots.

    What's been really surprising to me is how bad Japan's vaccination program has been going. They're pretty efficient about most things (except for making new Japanese babies).

    Bullshit- we (at least our freaking govt) luv you long time ;)

    Got the Johnson and Johnson stuff, so there was just one jab - had to queue fot this for over 2 hours in rain, cause that's was a "national May-day vaccination program". Otherwise I would have to accept to wait till July for the second dose of the Astra Zeneca preparation (after getting one last week).
    The thing is - it already paid off.
    My mother in law, who was caring for my youngest, didn't want to get vaccinated ("cause there're risks involved, you know").
    She fell sick last week, but only decided to go to test herself yesterday.
    Positive.
    We (me and Frau) are both vaccinated, so we weren't quarantined (at least at first), but both of the kids were.
    My wife's allergic to pollen, currently experiences an exacerbation, so she had an appointment with GP scheduled.
    But - once the GP heard that my best part's mother is positive - she sent her straight for testing instead.

    Now my wife, with running nose and nothing else to complain about, is officially quarantined too - at least till she gets a "-" in her test.

    Now guess who's the sole person in the family, who does not have to show up in the window, when the patrol car is around to check those subjected to quarantine?
    I know I can still transmit it, so I wear an FP2 mask now, but still - ain't that silly?

    Understood ;)

    I hope everyone will be fine (even your mother-in-law; there are so many jokes in all cultures about this subject). Nice to hear that you've got a growing family! We still wear masks when shopping, but honestly I don't know anyone who has had Covid. Hopefully you have some good reading material and work to keep you occupied until you're free again. Zoom sucks...

    Quarantine time!
    Wife's results came in at 10PM local time (2 hours ago).
    She's positive, so I guess that even the fact that I was vaccinated won't matter anymore and we'll all get quarantined.

    At least that lawn will be brought back to order...

    Well - I can but hope fot the sanity of our govt... no quarantine for me (cause I'm vaccinated) - I'm isolating myself at home, at least to what extent I can manage, instead.
    Wife (positive) is locked at home till the 22nd.
    The kids are locked till the 28th.
    Gonna drive the kids to the test noon-ish, just to shorten their quarantine (if they test negative).

    As long as I'm OK no one is complaining about me sleeping with a CoViD positive person... weird, ain't that?

    You and you wife are young (compared to an old fart like myself), so you will all be fine. My grandmother's little brother died during the so-called Spanish flu epidemic after WW1. This epidemic doesn't compare to that, IMHO.
